Very nice, balanced sounding SBD
Moderately hot, smokin' show. Maybe my favorite West LA Fadeaway, one of my favorite tunes.

regarding this recording assuming it is a 'soundboard matrix' I too am not a fan of this recording. Ideally it should give you a more accurate depiction of the 'live' sound. It also serves to make the vocals less 'up front' and again a more accurate depiction of what is heard live in addition to being less 'up front' the vocals for Garcia and Weir are less 'harsh' and more 'listenable.' To my hearing, taste,etc the 'soundboard matrix' recordings were hit or miss. If you are familiar with the way the different methods the vault tapes were made you know that from 71 - thru 79 they were usually not just simple soundboard outputs they were outputs mixed to tape. In 1980 it switched to simple soundboard outputs which were more uneven. A lot of tapes from 81 thru into 84(less so in 83/84 but still problematic) for instance are Bass light, loud vocals and keyboards. for the sake of accuracy Bear tapes from 69 into early 1970 were also 'mixed to tape.'

did this recording (and several other versions) get listed as a soundboard source, when it's so obvious they're not?
Love this site, but there is a lot of inaccuracy in the source descriptions. Why?
